Flashback: ISIS Claims Bataclan Attack in Paris “Just the Beginning”

ISIS released a video instructing fighters to fill their cars with gasoline and run over people just weeks before Islamist Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel used a truck to mow day Bastille Day crowds in Nice, France.

The Islamic State released an infographic in English back in December 2015 following the Paris attacks.

In 2015 ISIS released a statement claiming responsibility for the Islamic terror attacks on Paris in 2015 that killed around 127 and wounded more than 200.


The terrorists slaughtered over one hundred concertgoers at the Bataclan night club in Paris.

The statement by ISIS was released in French and Arabic text and audio as well as American English and Russian audio recordings, according to the Site Intel Group.

Site Intel posted an English translation, which differs somewhat from the American English audio posted by ISIS

An MP3 file of the ISIS statement can be found here.

The audio begins with a male voice singing in English the chorus to a song about the ‘soldiers of Allah’.

For the sake of Allah we will march though the gates of the paradise where our maidens await.

“We are men that love death just as you love your life, for the soldiers that fight in the day and the night.

The statement was then read in perfect, unaccented American English by a male voice.
